You have a very smart/people oriented dealer. However when I've been offered that free oil service in the past, and some dealers try to "pressure/guilt" you into taking recommended GM services at 5,15,30,50,000 miles, while they "got you". They ain't cheap and most people feel slightly obligated to at least get the tires rotated at $30! As long as they aren't pests about it. :thumb:*Enclave* said:I got my Enclave right before Thanksgiving. My dealership is a family owned, very customer service oriented dealership. I get free oil changes forever just for purchasing from them. I'm sure the dealer did this on their own, it did not come from Buick.
Even GM doesn't recommend injector cleaning. Hasn't been needed since the late 1980s.Smokin SRX said:My guy would suggest fuel injector cleaning for $139 at 15K miles! I bought a bottle of Gumout cleaner myself for $12 and was done as fast as I could pour it into the gas tank. ;D
ONE bottle of Sam Adams won't help me when I get the first scratch on this beauty! I think I'll need a whole case! :beer:Big Larry said:I would have preferred a bottle of Samuel Adams. That way I wouldn't care as much about any little scratches.

Thx Rwagoner, I didn't know that. What a money maker! But we've all heard of poor injector spray patterns due to build-up. Especially since the Enclave, unlike most of the Imports, does NOT require expensive, premium gas w/ better detergents, etc. So every 30K miles or so I'll throw in a bottle of fuel injector cleaner/water drier (dry gas) just for laughs.rwagoner said:Even GM doesn't recommend injector cleaning.

Actually, GM does recommend certain brands of gasoline that specifically have the correct amount of fuel injector cleaner in regular unleaded gas. Its not only for the injectors, but to prevent deposits on the valves that the additives are made for.Smokin SRX said:Thx Rwagoner, I didn't know that. What a money maker!

We only use gas from the following retail outlets:Top Tier Detergent Gasoline
TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is the premier standard for gasoline performance. Six of the world's top automakers, BMW, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen and Audi recognize that the current EPA minimum detergent requirements do not go far enough to ensure optimal engine performance.
Since the minimum additive performance standards were first established by EPA in 1995, most gasoline marketers have actually reduced the concentration level of detergent additive in their gasoline by up to 50%. As a result, the ability of a vehicle to maintain stringent Tier 2 emission standards have been hampered, leading to engine deposits which can have a big impact on in-use emissions and driver satisfaction.
These automakers have raised the bar. TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline help drivers avoid lower quality gasoline which can leave deposits on critical engine parts, which reduces engine performance. That’s something both drivers and automakers want to avoid.
Around where we live, there is Shell, and only Chevron and Texaco have Techron fuel additive which they use in all grades. You can buy Techron and use it yourself since this is one of the best additives and most recommended by car manufacturers.TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline Retailers
Gasoline retailers must meet the high TOP TIER standards with all grades of gasoline to be approved by the automakers as providing TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline.
In addition, all gasoline outlets carrying the brand of the approved retailer must meet the TOP TIER standards.
Additional gasoline retailers are added to the TOP TIER list as they meet the standards. The retailers known to be on the TOP TIER list are shown below.
